Milan will have a budget of €130m for the summer transfer market, according to reports.
A Chinese consortium, Sino-Europe Sports, is on the verge of completing a takeover of the Rossoneri, with the closing to be done by March 3.
i wonder if we'll be adding luis adriano's 25m wage savings to the mercato budget. realistically i can see us getting an additional 50m+ from player sales too (bacca 20m, niang 15m, sosa 5m, kucka 5m, poli 4m, zapata 2m, lopez 2m). with a total transfer kitty of 180m+ we can properly strengthen the squad with high quality players. otherwise talk of spending >50% of our budget on aubameyang/sanchez/aguero is just plain madness with so many other holes to fill.
I wouldn't count much on that Sosa ,Kucka ,Poli money...And ,if we sell both Bacca and Niang we'll have only Lapadula and Cutrone as strikers (they can't play serious role as first team players) ,so we will need 2 good strikers and they're most expensive ,so significant part of our buget would go for that. And than ,there's almost entire midfield to replace + partner for Romagnioli. So ,there is indeed no place for 70-80 milions per player expenses.

i think we'll sign at least 2 mids so given kucka + poli barely play it'd make sense to cash in on them. once monty returns we'll no longer require sosa as backup so 15m for all 3 is reasonable. if we sell bacca + niang, we'll sign at least one striker and one winger with the ability to play cf (keita?). i also wouldn't exclude the possibility of padding out the squad with loan deals e.g. deulofeu.
if sse spend 130m the same way suning did i think we'll be fine. suning spent 130m on predominantly young high potential players sought by the worlds top clubs e.g. mario 45m, gabigol 30m, gagliardini 28m and candreva 22m. aside from gabigol (who wasn't needed), the other players have significantly raised the teams performances. rakitic/isco/cesc 40m, keita 30m, de vrij 30m, dahoud/pellegrini/tielemans 20m and badelj 10m could significantly improve our team alongside donna, des, romagnoli, locatelli, bonaventura, suso. if we add 50m from player sales too we can afford belotti.
Forgive me for the essay but thought I'd try put it all together...

Say these guys go;
Bacca for 30(hopefully)
Niang 18(option)
Sosa 5?
Kucka 10?(Miha loves him so surely we could use him to get 10mill of bellotti's price)
Zapata and Lopez are as good as free if we want to get rid of them. There's just not that much interest in them and they're on decent wages.
Honda (out of contract)
Ocampos(end of loan)
Mati(end of loan)
Pasalic (end of loan)
Ely(probably 0 because he's crap)

Buy
Cesc 40 - Isco would cost more and Rakitic more again. Although I think Rakitic would be a better fit out of the two
Keita 30
De Vrij 30
Tielemans 20
Kessie/Badelj 15
Deulofeu 15

Leaves us with 33 mill(not including Kucka) to potentially get our hands on Bellotti. I believe, despite Torini's big talk, they would probably let him go for something like 45 and Kucka...

That leaves us with;
GK
Donna
Gabriel
(weak sub)
LB
Antonelli
Vangioni
RB
Calabria
DES
Abate
(still have the usual problem with wing backs)
CB
Roma
Gomez
Paletta
De Vrij
(significantly better)
CM
Cesc
Tielemans
Kessie/Badelj
Bona
Poli
Monto
Locatelli
Berto
Mauri
(Too many players)
Wing
Deulofeu
Suso
Keita
(still need one more winger)
St
Lapadulla
Belotti
Cutrone

Significantly better but we still have some real problems... granted Bonaventura can play LW as well as CM but would be better to get the extra winger. We could try sell off a few of the mids we have but the problem is finding interest in guys like Poli and Bertolacci. Do we give up on Mauri? and who's going to want Montolivo? And we're still stuck with injury prone wing backs with sub par substitutions for them.

Going back to Inter for a sec... They spent heaps the season before on average players before spending on game changers...
I think if we spend 150+mil this summer, than we can not ignore the LB position any longer. It's a big problem imo, and it should be high on the list of priorities. I would rather not sign 3 midfielders as you noted in your list, and instead go for 2 in order to leave room for a LB.

De Vrij is a good player, but I'm just worried about his injuries. He misses many games every season. It's definitely something to think about.

I do agree with all your sales and releases. I would not mind letting any one of those players go.

Sorry, I should have been clearer. I added my two cents worth but this was mainly an expansion of what donlocatelli was saying. I should have emphasised my main point which was the fact that despite being a significantly better team we've still got serious problems... namely options for wings and wing backs... 

For me, I'd be dumping Cesc, and spending the cash on another winger and a decent LB. leave the main cm for next season and sign one of the best we can get... preferrably Verratti... 

And I like De Vrij, but agree with the injuries. I wouldn't completely discount him but would defeinitely look a the options. Either way, wouldn't spend more than 35 on a CB.

We're faced with the problem of either signing 3 absolute stars this season and be left with problems or fix all the problems and leave the star signings for next season. I'd prefer the second option.. Leave the huge names for the season after.
You are right. Also, we might not even be able to convince stars to join us this year anyway.

Our problem is that we just have way too many holes to fill. We are basically full of players that are no more than back-up level but we have very few players that are capable of playong at the highest level. A team like Juventus for example can add 2 players for 150mil and they'll be close to unbeatable in the league. We on the other hand can spend 150mil and still not be sure if will even make the CL. That's how big of a hole B&G have put us in.
Using Juventus is the perfect example... They used a mix of the right older players with good young players to get to the point where they are now... take out Higuain and Pjanic, almsot all their other signings were on the cheap or free.

In this day and age, it's almost impossible for those sorts of players to go off for free or that cheap, but at the same time we can't expect to go from 8th to 2nd in one season... Look at Manchester United...
Manchester United has spent a total of 470.29 in the past 5 seasons
while Juve's spent 128.89 in that time
those figures are after bought/sold players only
in comparison, we've spent 60.42 mill over the last 5 seasons... again, these figures are bought/sold players only... we've probably spent 100s of millions on agent/signon fees in that time...
